GDPR Training Online Course
Our GDPR Training Online Course will provide the learner the basic knowledge to understand this legislation but more importantly how it will affect businessess.
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will be introduced throughout the EU and the UK on May 25th 2018. This is an important new regulation and every company who collects data, which could be linked to an individual, will be affected. High fines may be imposed for those who fall foul of this important regulation and it is vital that all staff who collate and gather information, do so correctly, in accordance with company policies. Your staff need to understand what changes have been made.
This awareness course outlines the changes in legislation, the rights individuals now have to protect their data, and how individuals in companies must act to be compliant with this new legislation.
